Welcome to Kind of a Big Deal, a daily roundup of great sales on the brands and items you love (tech, shoes, style, travel, etc.), as well as great new products. Please note: Deals are subject to change at the whim of the merchants mentioned.

Zero Breeze Portable Air Conditioner
This is your camping or parked car air cooler — at 1100 BTUs, it’s not gonna do a lot, but it could make a small, enclosed area bearable. Pluses: Five hours of battery time and you can lift with one hand. Currently, you can save up to $400 on a unit.

North Face

The North Face
Fleeces, hooded jackets, rugged backpacks … stock up for winter (and enjoy some end-of-season summer duds) with Backcountry’s huge sale, with prices up to 70% off.

Cast iron

Utopia Kitchen Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet
Home chefs: You definitely need a versatile pan that’ll work both in the oven and on top of your stove. Unlike other cast iron skillets, this one comes with a silicone hot handle holder. And it’s all 42% off.


Ghurka Rubberized Leather Duffel Bag
The British leather company is currently hosting a sale of some pretty classy bags of varying sorts, this one included at 30% off. Shop the rest of the sale here with discounts up to 75%.

Sales of note:

  • REI Outlet: Some select outdoor gear, boots and accessories are up to 70% off through Monday.
  • Summer Stripes: Huckberry has a sale on horizontal striped tees for up to 40% off — so if the sideways lines are your game, take a look.
